Wireless Intel drivers failing when upgrading to XP

I have upgraded to XP from 2000 on my Dell Latitude D610.

Neither the wireless or wired LAN then worked. So I installed the Intel drivers for both (files R155386.EXE and R82742.EXE from the intel driver download site) , and made sure I was using the latest BIOS.

The icon for the wireless started to appear in the notification area bottom right, like it used to under 2000.

When I hover it says "Wireless network found. Double click to connect to a wireless network". But when I double click nothing happens.

There is an "Intel® PROSet/Wireless" program running but it does not respond.

Utilisation goes to 100% because of 2 processes - ZcfgSvc.exe and iFrmewrk.exe, which from my searches are Intel Wireless programs.

When I boot up under Win 2000 again the wireless works fine.

Tried a zyxel USB wireless dongle, including installing their software, but it wont run.

Have a Vodafone Mobile Connect USB device and it connect me to the internet with not problem.

Have you also updated the chipset drivers for XP? This could cause a bottleneck trying to load stuff. Also, make sure your Windows Updates are all done and there aren't any other outstanding issue.
Just making sure. :)
